Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA894] DSA-894-1 abiword

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-894-1 abiword

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Chris Evans discovered several buffer overflows in the RTF import
mechanism of AbiWord, a WYSIWYG word processor based on GTK 2.
Opening a specially crafted RTF file could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2+cvs.2002.06.05-1woody3.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.7-3sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.1-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your abiword package.
